One of my servers was rebooted for some reason and all sites and e-mail accounts were down because the database could not be connected.  The first thing I checked was mysqld of course and it was not running.  The above was revealed in /var/log/mysqld.log

I was starting to panic and wondered if the server was compromised and I even checked /var/lib/mysql to make sure all the database data was still there.

The solution for this MySQL Error is simple:

chown root.root /tmp

chmod 1777 /tmp

And of course be sure that you start MySQL again.
